    In case anyone wanted to learn how to make the color on black and white photos like crossfire did, I made a tutorial for it.

    Haha... Cool.

    Gimp sucks though. Best way to do it would be to use photoshop, duplicate the original image on 2nd layer, desaturate that layer, then mask out the layer in the areas you want the original full color layer to show through (in this case te player). This way if you take away too much of the image, you can paint it back. You can also easily adjust the black and white area: make it lighter, darker, blur it, colorized it, etc.

    True, but we're trying to keep things simple for people who want to do minimal editing.

    Pretty sure you can do it that way with Gimp as well

    Gimp is a pain to use. Reason I use it is because I can't afford Photoshop and I don't like pirating software.

    I guess I shouldn't say that "gimp sucks" since I've never used it and would never use it because I am so comfortable with photoshops interface and key commands. I can do these BW background effects in like 2 minutes in photoshop, but I wouldn't have the first clue how to do it in gimp... Plus it's a bizarre name for image editing software.

    It's the same, really. Using Gimp feels like you're fighting with it, though. I don't like that.

    But, since I mainly do 3D and not much Photo editing, it suits me alright.

    Yeah, its loaded with so much stuff it can be overwhelming at first. It's best to just learn the basics, get used to the interface and then learn things as you need them. I use it almost everyday.

    Cool, what do you use for 3D? I do a lot of 2D animation stuff with After Effects, and just took a bunch of ZBrush courses. Now I am trying to learn Cinema4D. I've done some modeling jobs using Cinema the past couple months, but still learning it. I want to do a 3D sculpt of Curtis Martin, but haven't had the time.

    Blender. It's amazing, especially for open source.

    Yea, I used to do some AE too. That was when I didn't mind pirating software, lol.
